Program structure and options vary from K-7 and 8-9. (Please see grade specific links for details.)The onsite teachers and DL students/facilitators maintain regular communication; work / evidence of learning is submitted consistently.  Grade 5 – 9 students have access to the FVDES tutoring center for additional help.
